If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. –
Desiderata, Max Ehrmann, 192
All you gotta do is put your mind to it and do it, do it, do it.
A painting that is well composed is half finished.
[E]very painting has a failure to push you to do better.
Failure is the gateway to success.
If you learn only methods, you’ll
be tied to your methods, but if you learn principles,
you can devise your own methods.
